Two scholars have a debate. One scholar says the goals of the modern women’s movement are contained within the works of classic texts (written by men), including Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau, and Marx.
What women want today—for example, the right to keep one’s property, the right to work and to be fairly paid for it, the right to speak and assemble, and even the right to self-preservation and not to be harmed—can be found in the works of these philosophers.
The paradigms can easily be expanded to include women, and they have been, the first scholar says. The other scholar disagrees. He/she says these paradigms cannot be so easily expanded, and that they fail to encompass women’s issues.
Which scholar do you agree with, and why? (Incorporate the Friedan pages into your response.)
